Purpose: We determined the associations between nocturia and sleep disorders in perimenopausal women. Materials and Methods: A total of 100 women with nocturia were compared to 200 without nocturia. Obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, anxiety and menopausal stage were assessed using validated questionnaires. Comorbidities associated with nocturia were determined by bivariate analysis and multivariate logistic regression. Results: Independent associations for nocturia were anxiety (OR 2.11, 95% CI 1.08-4.13), black American race (OR 2.00, 95% CI 1.06-3.85), obstructive sleep apnea symptoms (OR 1.73, 95% CI 1.18-2.53) and insomnia (OR 1.11, 95% CI 1.05-1.12). Conclusions: Nocturia is associated with sleep disorders in perimenopausal women.
